Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


COVID-19 Update (June 23)

After careful consideration and planning, the Faculty of Education has made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person LEAP and LAUNCH program for July 6 – 17, 2020. As a result, we have provided registrants a full refund.

You can find more information on Laurier’s COVID-19 page.

With the news of the cancellation of our in-person programming, we have been working hard to develop an online program to provide to you and the Waterloo community this summer. LEAP and Laurier’s Faculty of Education has partnered up with LAUNCH Waterloo, a STEAM outreach organization in the region, to create the LAUNCH+Laurier Summer of STEAM program.

Offered by the week or by the season, LAUNCH x Laurier Summer of STEAM has just the right mix of programming to keep kids engaged in science, technology, engineering, art, and math all summer long. Programs feature small teams online with live coaches. Teams work together to explore STEAM activities, ask questions, engage with their teammates, and gain valuable, online collaborative skills.

Learn more about LAUNCH x Laurier Summer of STEAM programs by visiting: launchwaterloo.ca.

You can contact us at leap@wlu.ca with any inquiries you may have.

About LEAP

LEAP campers are gifted/highly able children and youth in grades 1-9 who are looking for a day camp experience that piques their curiosity and has a large “fun” quotient. LEAP camps focus on enrichment and challenge in a fun, interactive atmosphere. Our programs emphasize highly interactive, hands-on learning that taps into higher order thinking skills. All courses are developed and taught by certified teachers and/or experts in the field.

Programs run at our Waterloo campus two different times during the year:

  • Our Sensational Saturdays camp runs for six Saturday mornings from the end of January through the beginning of March. Registration typically opens in November and closes in early January.
  • Our summer program runs for two weeks in July. We offer a variety of half-day and full-day camps. Each week runs independent of the other. Campers can attend just one week or both. Registration typically opens in March and closes at the end of May.

If you would like to be placed on our email list to be notified of future camp offerings, contact leap@wlu.ca.
